You've heard of a pub crawl. How about an art crawl? This kind of happening invites you to caravan by car from one artist's studio to the next - and while some venues have wine or cocktails waiting, it's mainly about imbibing creativity.

This coming weekend, on Saturday, October 26, an Autumn Art Tour kicks off in Woodstock. The art-crawl aspect of the event involves a peek into the studios of nine area artists: abstract painters Heather Hutchinson, Mark Kanter, Pat Horner, and Calvin Grimm; sculptor Lowell Miller; painter and sculptor Jenne Currie; fantasy painter Hatti Iles; painter Harvey Konigsberg; and potter Brinton Baker. Art crawlers will enjoy a light lunch as well as a drinks reception - then the party will continue with a fundraising dinner at The Red Onion followed by dessert and a live music performance by local singer-songwriter Rachel Loshak. On Sunday, art tour attendees can come along for a guided walk at the Comeau Property followed by brunch at Oriole 9 and a self-guided walking tour of Woodstock's art galleries.

A portion of the proceeds from this art lovers' extravaganza will benefit the Woodstock Public Library - in particular, the construction of its much needed additional space, the Library Annex.

For Art Tour tickets, contact Rachel Jackson of Ingenious Art Group Productions at 646-331-0908 or While dinner is sold out, tickets are still available for the dessert-and-concert portion of the evening (with an array of sweets donated by Susan Gordon of Divine Desserts) at The Red Onion.
